Host Michael Vara is joined by Scott J. Kolbaba, MD, a practicing internist, interviewed 200 courageous physicians who came forward with the most miraculous experiences of their careers. In the latter half, he shared some of their amazing experiences. One orthopedic surgeon, Dr. Mochell, relayed a story about a patient named Mary who flatlined, but eventually regained a pulse after “Code Red” CPR efforts, finally becoming conscious the next day. Several days after that, when she was leaving the hospital, she thanked the surgeon and proceeded to describe in great detail the medical efforts that revived her in the emergency room, even though she was unconscious and had no heartbeat at the time.
A trauma surgeon, Dr. Heim, told Kolbaba about a ski trip in Colorado with his family, and how they found themselves in the midst of a snowstorm. He suddenly had a strong premonition, and moved some distance in the opposite direction of his family, and came to a large pine tree. There, under the tree, was an unconscious skier covered in snow. Heim was able to set his broken leg with a tree branch and get help for the man, who fully recovered. Another tale involved a visitation from the ghost or apparition of an Irish midwife, who intervened in the difficulty pregnancy of obstetrician’s wife, and may have saved her life.
